莫迪的沙文主义问题

新德里—随着新年的来临,我们也日益明确地看到,印度新政府陷入了一个完全属于作茧自缚的困境——前任政府从未面临过如此困局。

莫迪所在的印度人民党(Bharatiya Janata Party)赢得了四分之一个世纪以来的首次下议院绝对多数,从而不必面临联合政府的压力和约束。莫迪的海外访问也带来了新商业机会、一大波外国投资和合资企业。他宣誓要改善印度在世界银行全球《营商环境》报告中的排位,从羞于见人的142名至少提高到前50名。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend.
